    Here's the latest NEW three wheeler. No prices listed as of yet but I've been told that it will be in the teens. Biggest problem is that they are electric and they will of 3 different battery pack choices. Sounds like it will end like the Nevco, Gizmo did. 38 manufactured, all differently. http://www.arcimoto.com

    100% electric vehicles are doomed because people don't like the idea of possibly being stranded. Like Aptera, add a small Honda gas generator and "Maybe".

    Interesting concept, thanks for sharing the link! They appear to be early on in development, I sent them a question asking when production is targeted to start.

    No. This is so much less than an Elio. Not for me.

    Almost the same thing an Elio is but without a top and sides.
    Elio has much more smoother lines.

    this in no way peaks my interest like the Elio when i first saw it. and at double the cost, it is even less interesting. The points that they try to make for marketing are eerily similar to Elio.

    And it's all electric... and who knew that "... the tandem seating configuration also provides optimal occupant balance on the centerline". A new acronym! OOB.

    Not nearly as wide as the Elio, IIRC, this thing is at 58 inches. Oooo, and "... The enclosed frame base model can be augmented with clear polycarbonate panels to provide full protection from the elements". Hey I want to be augmented too! (with clear polycarbonate panels, or CPPs)

    Claims to have a cargo area big enough for golf clubs AND groceries. Maybe if the groceries are IN the golf bag.

    Ok, I'll stop. lol I sound like an Elio basher.

    It reminds me of the Cree Sam but in metal. At least the Sam has a body. Friends of (Cree) Sam.

    If I were to chose between the Arcimoto and the Cree Sam, I think I would lean toward the Cree Sam. :cool:

    It does show it with a body.

    It does not look bad.

    It looks shorter than the Elio.
